Senior Attorney and Manager, Clean Energy Regulatory Implementation
Christie is a regulatory attorney responsible for advancing clean energy initiatives in Illinois. She focuses on ensuring effective implementation of Illinois’s Future Energy Jobs Act, sweeping energy policy reform passed in 2016. The bill includes provisions for doubling the state’s energy efficiency portfolio and massive development of new wind and solar generation by 2030, and Christie will guide and provide input on implementation of these provisions.
She also serves as EDF’s representative in NextGrid, a statewide, collaborative effort to rethink the roles of the utility, the customer, and energy solution providers in a 21st-century electric grid, and in other clean energy and smart grid proceedings in Illinois.
Originally from St. Louis, Missouri, Christie attended St. Louis University for undergrad before earning her law degree from Loyola University Chicago. Christie began working in the energy field after law school, joining Illinois’ Citizens Utility Board (CUB) – the state’s utility watchdog – as a Senior Attorney. EDF, CUB, and various stakeholders worked closely to get the Future Energy Jobs Act passed. She is a member of the Chicago Bar Association’s Energy, Telecommunications and Water Committee, as well as the CBA’s Environmental Law committee.
